Problems with sweet peas

Posted: 21/05/2016 at 08:32

Could it simply be down to the comparatively cold weather we've had so far this year?  Maybe they'll improve as temperatures rise.

I have no problem with people posting opposing views either - as long as they realise they must be wrong.

Indeed so Swiss Sue. 

The irony is , any future ban will only apply to domestic use. Farmers, local authorities etc will still be able to use it.

See original post

 And I wonder who would be more likely to over use it?

It might seem a small percentage, but it's of a phenomenally high figure.  If my calculations are correct its something over £7 billion per year.  That seems like a lot to me.

Lupins i a south facing circle in the middle of my garden.

You can certainly stake them.  What I can't get my head around is a south facing circle.  Surely a circle faces in all directions?

 No it's time people stuck to the original subject and stopped running private feuds in public.

Is talking aloud madness?

KT thanks for your input too but I realise I've made a huge mistake cofessing here my very embarassing ignorance for not being more careful when buying, in my haste to want some screening.

I am now stuck with three quite expensive things that will simply be too big for my little garden. I do not have the courage to ask the nice man at the garden center to swap them for me, be too embarassed.

I think my only option is to try and sell them on the internet at a reduced price.

Please some of you tell me you have made some embarassing choices too,.feeling so stupid and worried today.

See original post

 I would speak to the nice man at the Garden Centre to see if you can return them and get a credit note.  It would potentially be in their best interest as well as yours.  You obviously need something to replace them with, and you are likely to return again if you feel you have been well treated.  You have nothing to lose by admitting you have made a mistake and asking for advice.

As for me, I'm perfect, research everything in detail before purchase, never make a bad purchase, never have any plants die on me, and my lawn is absolute perfection.  My middle name is Pinocchio

Roots growing into adjoining gardens isn't really an issue, it's the distance from the house which you really need to consider.  I've just planted a hawthorn and a rowan.  They are only about 4 - 6 feet from the fence but about 80 feet from the house. 

Paeony flowers

I can't remember the variety, but they are both the same one.  Pot grown.  I'll try some BFB to see if it helps / encourages the lazy one.
